Crazy eyes, missing tooth. The man was not on an upswing. Here's hoping death brought respite to both he and his family.

Just a sad case all the way around.

And yeah, TMZ had to pick a photo of him with a missing tooth to bolster their not-so-subliminal message that he was a broke, has-been. Nice going.

Dr. Drew is the moron who claims it was not an overdose that killed him, it was pneumonia. He went into the hospital on May 11, 2011 from a drug overdose and aspirated while in the hospital. He dies on May 26, 2011 after being in a coma the entire time. Heck, if I stop taking vicodin and oxycodone for three days and drink a lot of fluids, there won't be any drugs in my system either. So even in a coma, his body would have expelled the entire amount of drugs in his system in the 15 days he was in the hospital. So he died without drugs in his system. How can the coroner claim it was accidental?

Too bad Jeff Conaway didn't just use Medical Marijuana, then he would have stayed alive. Medical Marijuana relieves pain without all the nasty after effects of dying. Medical marijuana, and all marijuana should be legal! It is helpful to people for pain reduction and other maladies, plus marijuana can be a much less harmful recreational drug than liquor, heroin, crack, and cocaine.
Great book on medical marijuana: MARIJUANA - Guide to Buying, Growing, Harvesting, and Making Medical Marijuana Oil and Delicious Chocolates to Treat Pain and Ailments by Mary Bendis. This book has great recipe for marijuana oil and tasty, yummy chocolates!

Could you guys try to buy a little bit of "respect for the dead"? Geez, the picture you chose was really unappropriate. Wonder what type of photo they will use when Harvey kicks the bucket? Maybe a nice one that shows his AIDS ridden body covered with sores, perhaps!!!
